SphinxSearch issuesEdit

Hello! I've just installed SphinxSearch for use in our internal wiki and everything is working via command line (indexes created, etc.). I'm also modified my LocalSettings file with the require content (didn't crash the wiki). I even ran the searchd.exe in the command line to make sure it's running correctly and it was fine. However, what should I be seeing on my wiki page. Does this actually take over the default search routine in MW? Is there another way I activate it? Do the results appear on a separate page? I'm confused...help!

Hi, where can I see an example of the Usage Statistics Template? Why can't all users see growth of the wiki? Cheers, --Dmb 22:21, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately, all extension I wrote, including the Usage Statistics, are only available on my company's internal wiki which is not available for access from the outside world. The best I can do, if you are interested, is take a snapshot of the display and post those on the extension page.
As for requiring administrative access to view overall wiki statistics - this was a corporate decision. The management decided that if regular users had access to such statistics, then would feel pressured. I can't say I agree with this decision, but the bottom line is that I had to follow it. To remove this feature from the extension you have change a tiny bit in the code. In extensions/SpecialUserStats_body.php, in function GetUserUsage() remove the line containing
 if ($wgUser->isAllowedToCreateAccount()) {
as well as the line right above the return statement which only contains
}
Hope that answers your questions. --Gri6507 00:14, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Minor changes to UsageStatisticsEdit

Hi Paul. You may have seen it already in SVN, but I made a few minor changes to the UsageStatistics extensions: I renamed the message array from "allMessages" to "messages" and made some cosmetic changes to the i18n file. I have also added support for Betawiki, so you can be expecting another 5-10 languages supported out of the box within a week. Please remember to add files to SVN with the property "eol-style:native". Also did this (commits r29385, r29387). Cheers! Siebrand 14:15, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the corrections. Just one quick question - what does one go about adding files to SVN with the property "eol-style:native"? --Gri6507 14:31, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
I only know how this works in Windows using TortoiseSVN: click right on file, select tab subversion, click 'properties', click 'add', select property name 'eol-style' from drop down and fill 'native' in form. Confirm "OK" twice and commit.
There must be a short manual for this with TortoiseSVN somewhere on this wiki, I think. That gives the steps to take care of this immediately when committing a new file. Got it: Subversion/auto-props. Cheers! Siebrand 14:52, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Perfect. Many thanks. I've updated my setup. --Gri6507 16:42, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Todo Tasks installation : fatal errorEdit

Hi ! I tried to instal this very nice TodoTasks but my wiki got fatal error :

Fatal error: Class 'SpecialPage' not found in /myserver/w/extensions/SpecialTaskList/SpecialTaskList_body.php on line 282

Please, what's the problem (running on MediaWiki 1.12) ? Thanks. --Toto13 13:00, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Take a look at Extension:Todo Tasks#Step_2. I believe you are missing the first require_once() call in your LocalSettings.php. --Gri6507 17:03, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
So simple... Thanks a lot ! --Toto13 16:01, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

WhoIsWatching compatible with MediaWiki 1.12.0?Edit

Hi Paul!

I am getting some errors with WhoIsWatching Extension running on MediaWiki 1.12.0. Is this extension compatible? Is this a known bug?

More detailed explaination can be found on the extension talk page

Thanks! --Luke 13:57, 20 August 2008 (WST)


I was not aware of these issues. I will try to take a look at this in the near future (but it will probably take me about a week to get to it). --Gri6507 12:01, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Feature Request for usage statistics extensionEdit

It is not possible to install GNUPlot on shared godaddy hosting...any chance you would consider using google graphs to generate the graphs for the usage statistics extension?

I have no problem doing so. The only catch is that I have never used google graphs. Is that an online feature provided by google? What format does it take data? --Gri6507 17:07, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
I have implemented this option in v1.11. --Gri6507 14:13, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Installing Sphinx Search engine in eny mediawiki installationEdit

Hello every body, my friends and i are new to mediawiki but we have installed it right and have some extensions running all right. Now we need to use the SphinxSearch extension but we dont have a clue on how to proceed. We doneloaded the bin files for our windows OS but we don't know to configure sphinx.conf file to make it work with our instalaioin of mediawiki. I have search the web and there are some examples but e tutorial for dummies like us is not a hand. Please, give us some guidance.

Your extensionsEdit

Hello, one extension written by you (or more) is listed on Git/Conversion/Extensions still in svn. The SVN repository will be closed in the future, and localisation support on translatewiki.net has already been dropped: please help update the list so that we know which extensions are still of interest and should therefore be moved to Git, and if possible volunteer to continue maintaining some requesting migration, or find someone else who can do so. Thanks, Nemo 14:56, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Just coming by to give ThanksEdit

Hi, just stopping by to say thank you. I've got Sphinx running on Yellpedia.com. We're a massive new wiki that just went into public beta. Via a special script we wrote we uploaded the entire United States Yellow Pages into a wiki and thanks to your extension the searching of all those pages (ten million plus) is a breeze.

A kitten for you!Edit

thanks for Extension:Code :)

please see Extension:RawCodeFile
